How Chiropractic Makes Less So Much More
By Sandy Schroeder
When we hear the phrase, “less is more,” we may think of furniture design, but chiropractic is proving this concept works for healthcare, too. Less may provide more of the right answers to fight the opioid prescription addiction that is sweeping our country.
Chiropractic is stepping up to fight back with drug-free pain relief. Chiropractic has been named the “conservative first choice” for pain, instead of pain prescriptions, or surgery, according to the American Chiropractic Association. It’s the natural, whole person, logical alternative.
Over 1,000 people experiencing opioid prescription overdoses arrive in United States emergency rooms every day. In 2015, over 30,000 people died from prescription overdoses in the U.S., according to ACA.
Researchers say opioid pain medications provide only limited temporary pain relief, but often trigger devastating addiction. Chiropractic offers a way back for anyone caught in the web of prescription medication addiction.
How Chiropractic Responds
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is well equipped to help. If you, or someone in your family, is fighting pain and opioid prescription addiction, the licensed doctors of chiropractic at The Joint will work with you and your doctor to find pain relief without medication.
Your chiropractor will show you how less becomes so much more, using a gentle, targeted adjustment that may correct dysfunctions to provide far-reaching pain relief.
The spine houses the central nervous system that governs our body. When the brain-to-body communication breaks down, chiropractic may help repair the system to relieve pain.
At the same time, you may feel more relaxed, energized and alert. Many patients report sleeping better, and experiencing better metabolism and digestion.
As pain relief is achieved and nerve irritation soothed, the goal will be to re-establish wellness. Your chiropractor will monitor your progress helping you stay on track. As you take back your life, you may eat healthier, work out more, and try various stress reduction tactics. Often, weekly 15-minute adjustments prove to be the most effective way back to complete wellness.
